Ugh! What to do!
The teachers yakking on and on
’bout the teachers sailing to somewhere called Oman?

Lunch and recess is years away
What’s the answer?
I don’t know what to say!

NOW the teacher’s talking about
Queen Elizabeth and her paper route.

I THINK I’m getting my history right.
But I’m NOT doing it with all my might.

Christopher Columbus was a famous pop . . . → Read More: March 2017

Bunnies can be fluffy,
Bunnies can be soft,
Bunnies can be small,
Bunnies can be big,
Bunnies are the best,
I love bunnies!

Bunnies can be cute,
Bunnies can be tall,
Bunnies can be short,
I love bunnies!

Memories Of His Mother

His memories of his real mother he could perhaps count on one hand.

One to when he was just a baby, holding her thumb as if he let go, the world would go crashing down.

The rest were to the countless times he found her on the floor like a dead body, but she was . . . → Read More: February 2017

Lunar Peace

The sun was quickly disappearing
As the moon rises to take its place
As the new King in the sky

It white light finds its way down from the heavens
And lights up the field I was in
Basking it in a white hue

All the stars could be seen from the ground
Twinkling and blinking
Forming different shapes in the . . . → Read More: February 2017

I wrote a poem, I ate some foam, it was disgusting, and I did some busting.

I saw a cow, I did a great KA-POW! Outside was foggy, and I was
really soggy.

There was a sudden hurricane, I ate a candy cane, I looked at my friend’s face, and I climbed up a staircase.

I sat in a chair, . . . → Read More: February 2017

Mom’s Heels

Momma’s heels were huge to me,

But they still held my little feet.

They reminded me how big she was

And how I loved her just because.

I wanted to show her much I cared,

But she was all the way downstairs.

Slowly I walked down the hall,

Trying carefully not to fall.

As I got to the stairs I . . . → Read More: January 2017

The Fat Cat

There once was a cat who had a big fat hat.

The cat had a dad that was very sad just because he named his cat big fat Fatty.

So one day the cat was very mad and gobbled up his dad.

Bottom Power

Great affluence of mild coercion
Euphemism of great weakness
Supplying domination from frail to might
Shrewdly pulling the strings of opinion
To play tunes pleasing to her

Bottom power
Unfair not trailblazer, trailed by fairness
Speeding her path with ambition vast like titanic,
Building Everest high ambition
Make-marring her

With you ‘behind’
She’s moused the ‘CPU’ of the system,
Gently dragging the bossy processor to . . . → Read More: December 2016

Loving You

Love has no exact definition as I know
Some say that was true,
I noticed that when I fell in love with you

I’m happy ‘coz you are happy
I’m scared when you are scared
I’m sad when you are sad
I’m angry at myself when you are mad at me

I feel lonely when you are not at my side
It’s okay . . . → Read More: November 2016

… My Life

I felt so alone inside my head,
A constant wish that I was dead.
Empty and broken, I was alone,
The reasons behind this? Unknown.

Then I let you on my life, deep into my heart,
I believed that nothing would ever keep us apart.
My whole world had fallen into place,
When my darkest feelings you . . . → Read More: November 2016
